Congratulations to City of Melville on their 2019 WARR Award for Community Engagement Success of the Year.
The WARR Awards recognise organisations and individuals who are going to great lengths to improve and grow the industry and are run by the @Waste Management and Resource Recovery Association of Australia (WMRR) and @Inside Waste magazine.
The City of Melville has invested over the last 18 months in the way it engages and educates residents on all things waste. From rap waste videos, to gaming apps and interactive information sessions, they have changed the way they communicate and it has made a huge impact on not only diversion from landfill targets and contamination levels, but also reduced customer calls, complaints and confusion about what goes in what bin.
The City of Melville’s three bin FOGO collection is being supported by $1.18 million funding from the State Government through the Waste Authority.
